Superb! A Classic in the genre.
1 April 2004 | by (Medan, Indonesia) – See all my reviews

I remember I was a little boy whose even cannot read the subtitle or understand what the actors spoke when the first time I watched ‘Buddha's Palm'. But the impression I have that this is really an entertaining flick and I love it instantaneous. It fulfilled my child fantasy. The second view to me was when I'm a junior high school student in a matinee show. Once again I stunned by it charm, and I can appreciate it with more mature value. Now, thanks for the nice effort from Celestial Pictures, I can collect this as my own private home collection.

Buddha's Palm combines fantasy and Wu Xia blatantly and with it many colorful characters and novel plot it became one of the classic. Taylor Wong, as the director successfully made it with old school ambience and new wave influence altogether. See it for your self if you claim you're self as a Wu Xia fans. Maybe, the fantasy will disturb you if you seek for the plain Wu Xia plot, but in my opinion the fantasy element doesn't spoil the whole film's structure, instead make it more glorious. The year that the film made (1982) doesn't effected the up-to-date feel for a fantasy or Wu Xia film. Yes, you still can enjoy this even you now the F/X are dated. Buddha's Palm also featuring many Shaw Brothers beloved actors like Derek Yee, Kara Hui, Alex Man, Goo Goon Chung and many others. Their performance is over the top.

The only thing bothers me that Buddha's Palm got many character but doesn't build them well. It seem that the fast pace have make them to appears instantly. But, except that, I think this is a superb film that should be appreciated not only for the Wu Xia or fantasy fans.

8/10
